Walbro HD-17A carb replacement
« on: September 01, 2015, 10:55:53 AM »
Hello Everyone:
I've isolated an MS440 idling issue (rpm's drop from normal idle to irregular idle after leaving the saw on the ground for more than 20 secs.) to the carb (got two MS440's and switched carbs). After rebuild kit and fussing with tuning and carb cleaner, the issue remains and it seems like the best solution is a replacement carb. Are there aftermarket brands with decent quality that you have had success with, please?
Stihl MS260 Pro, MS261, MS440 x2, MS460, FS90; 1982 Power King 1614
